More Families Seek Kidney Donations on Facebook
Date:5/30/2012

Only 5 percent of the pages seeking donations mentioned the risks of kidney donations, and only 11 percent mentioned the associated costs.

"Use of social media could be an effective way to solicit kidney donation, but more study is needed to determine how to do this safely and with enough knowledge to make informed decisions," Chang said in a Loyola news release.

More information

The National Kidney Foundation has more about kidney transplantation.
